A New Collection of Poems from Marilyn Duckworth

From Standing Room Only, 2:42 pm on 9 April 2017

Marilyn Duckworth's just published her first poetry collection since 1975. Mind you she's written many a novel, short story and even a memoir during that time. And just last year she was received the Prime Minister's Award for Literary Achievement for Fiction - the most recent of many awards she's won throughout her long literary career. Her last poetry collection Other Lovers' Children was published in 1975 - this new one is called The Chiming Blue. Lynn Freeman asks her about her poetry, and how it fits in with her fiction and non fiction writing.
